Just a cheap potentimeter or resistor that gets dead spots and gets non-linear so for $25 easy to rule out and simple to change.

My 99 blazer 4x4 shows a p1870 fault code,but yet it shifts fine and shows no sign of slip while driving.Is it a big job to change the tcc solenoid?How much do they cost and what would a shop charge to replace it?
Thanks for the help.
#6 of 6 Transmission Problems
Nov 28, 2007 (6:10 pm)
I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer it started having trouble when I would put it in drive or reverse - it didn't want to go into gear. When driving home the second gear drum burnt out. I took it what I thought was a mechanic with a great reputation. He was supposed to overhaul the transmission. I've had to take it back to him 3 times and I'm getting ready to take it back for a fourth time. It acts like it isn't sure when to shift, it will wind the gear out then the RPMs will shoot up then finally shift. Some times it doesn't seem like it is ever going to shift. The blazer has problems pulling hills and again is having trouble going into drive & reverse. You have to shift it back to nuetral then put it into gear.
Are there any possible items that the mechanic may have fogotten to replace? He says that he's replaced all the components in the transmission as well as the value body. I'm beginning to think he's short cutting something because it doesn't really drive much different than it did when second gear fried. I've only been able to make it a couple of weeks each time he works on it.
I'm sort of stuck now, as much as I have invested. I thought that if I possibly asked some direct questions I might be able get the thing fixed.
Any advice is appricated.
